International Trade and Conflict: Determinants, Impact, Endogeneity and Data
The dissertation examines the relationship between conflict and trade on several levels: First, data problems and resulting sample selection bias are being discussed. Second, the impact of different forms of conflict on bilateral trade flows is being analyzed employing a gravity equation. Third, the co-founding factors of the trade-conflict relationship, namely democracy and development, are being included in a country-by-country vector auto-regressive analysis.
